Today is my Birthday so I skipped my first two classes and went on a run.  I decided to get the hard things done first so I went on the same run as Saturday.  I felt a lot better than the other day.  It was still cold but not too bad and I didn't come home with any frost-bite like on Saturday.  It was a good way to start the week.

I was a little tight from yesterday, so my run today was supposed to be recovery.  I went inbetween my afternoon classes, because I had a huge test in EX Phys this morning.  It was a pretty nice day and I actually over dressed for the first time all year. I felt really sluggish at first but actually was running good and didn't know it.  I did the Center Street/River Heights loop with Old Main stairs.  By the time I was done with my run I had run my fastest time of the year.  I was pleased.  If I can go out and my recovery run becomes my fastest time of the year on that course, it means that I am actually reaching a level of fitness.

Lundstrom 5 miler. Nice day today other than some poor air quality.  I went out at noon today because my class was canceled. I felt a bit of a twitch in back of my right knee that I wasn't too fond of.  I might take tomorrow or Friday off so I don't overdue it.  I am trying to move up the mileage slowly but as fast as posible, and I don't want to take any chances of getting injured.  I felt okay other than that twitch.  I ran the last 1.6 as tempo in 9:09 and my total time was 33:42

I went out today at about 11:00am because I had another class cancel. It was a nice day and the air quality was much better. I went on a relatively new run today. I was trying to get a similar run to what I will face on Saturday so I went on my River Heights/Center street loop, but I added going all the way up Mountain Road to the mouth of Dry Canyon. I turned around and ran down to where I normally turn into River Heights and continued with my 7 mile course. I forgot how much of a climb it is going up Cliff Side and Mountain Road, I was ready to turn around when I did. I actually ran faster than the other day on my 7 miler if you cut out the part up and down Mountain Road (49:09), I even went up old main stairs at the end. I think I will add a bit to that run and make it a 15k.

I felt pretty good today after my wife spent 45 minutes last night working all of the nasty knots out of my calves. I am a little nervous about the 10 miler on Saturday, because I know it is going to be a tough one. Plus, going from a 10k to a 10 miler in two weeks is a lot different than going from a 5k to a 10k in two in two weeks.

Warmed up by myself before the race for just under two miles.   The weather was nice, it had been raining but had stopped by race time.  I stripped down to shorts and a long-sleeve shirt.

I took off easy and moved my way up during the race.  The mile markers were off so I didn't even worry about splits.  I ran with a few guys for the first couple of miles and then HRH and I started to chase the group in  front of us at about half-way.  Bob was ahead of me until we hit the down hill with just over two miles left and I then pulled away and started to close on the three in front of me, one of which was Cody.  I ran out of road before I caught any of them. 

The course was tough, especially 4.5-7 miles.  I ran about how I wanted and had no major disappointments.  It was a decent performance for me right now. 

I went on a cool down with Tracy Phiefield afterwards.

I am going to really have to pull out some good races next month if I want to place in my age in this circuit.  At least I didn't lose much ground on the front runners this time.

I reached my goal of 50 miles for the week.

(Tangent 65 miles)
